More than 300 MDS volunteers and their snow shovels descended on several snowed-in areas of New York . . .
Mennonite Disaster Service
Mennonite Disaster Service volunteers often describe their service as being the hands and feet of Jesus. In late November those hands — and backs — were working hard, shoveling the historic snowfall in New York.
More than 190 youth and youth sponsors from around the U.S. and Canada gave a week of their summer to serve at one of three Mennonite Disaster Service Youth Project sites.
Youth groups worked in Staten Island, N.Y., High River, Alta. and Jamestown, Colo.
